[applause] i would like each of you to take two minutes to tell us where you see where we are and where we are generally headed. i just want an overview from you, then i want to go to our legends. >> thank you very much. to the pastor of the church, great to be in this beautiful place this morning. [applause] reverend al sharpton, another big round of applause.
